    This indy dumpster fire is officially
  2. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    Guys.....Thunder? Really?

    I think it would have been much less eye rolling if said Native American didn't come to the ring in a feather headdress and do a war dance during his babyface comebacks.

    Wow, read some of those responses and really, Fuck Twitter fools.
  5. R.I.P., Bobby Heenan

    Not much to add to what everyone else has said. I think one thing for me is that The Brain is the guy I think of when as I aged and went from "like the faces, hate the heels" to more of an appreciation for how good the performance of a role is. I always marveled at how quick witted he was, too. And sorry Hogan marks---Bobby spells it out right here- 1-2-3.

    With all the dopey crap on TV, the fact that this dude's life is not a reality TV series is completely mind boggling.
  7. I will come in late on this topic, but here is my take. I was always on the fence, but my wife watches "Total Bellas" or whatever it's called. This episode features DB as a husband and future father. Kind of emotional and after watching it I don't think I am cool with DB wrestling again. He is a husband and dad, he doesn't have to do it to make a living and if he does, I'm not watching. And I'm uncomfortable with it. Thing is, I wouldn't have much to say on the family front but that is out there for all to see.
  8. Raw is Cena vs. Strowman - 9/11/2017

    I can't agree with this enough, Marty. A good shoot promo is one that stays within the framework of the show while still giving a wink to the more involved fan. The Miz's example are great ones, going back to the Talking Smack. That douche who used to write wrestling shows in the late 90's perverted the whole thing by doing the whole "writers in the back" nonsense.
  9. I've been listening to the LAW guys for a long time and I haven't noticed any difference at all regarding TNA.
  10. He doesn't "get" that he's a money mark getting fleeced by old carnies.

    At this point, there are very few arguments that point to the independent contractor thing that I have heard anyone ever reasonably make. The other day I was listening to a podcast talking about the WWE "dress policy" and I got to thinking. Think about this. A company hires you to be in California to perform a job. It is entirely your responsibility and financial burden to get there. And the company tells you how you have to dress or you will be fined? You are not on their clock when you travel, nor do they pay for it. How is it even legal for them to tell you how to dress? That is absurd.

    I know there is no one real answer to the WWE injury thing, probably a combo of many things. One of the things I always thought of was that the average size of the WWE wrestler is bigger than anywhere else. Bigger dudes create bigger impacts and all that size creates way more stress on joints and tendons and ligaments and such. At he end of the day (which has been discussed in a few threads these last few days) it's just a dangerous profession. When I look at one of my all time favorites Arn Anderson and see that he had to retire early, that's a guy that worked one of the safest styles imaginable.
  13. I can only hope you looked at him and said "my friend, it appears you brought some amateur wrestling skills to a knife fight".
  14. PWI 500 - 2017 EDITION

    I'd watch it.
  15. I got a Japanese rolling backbreaker so I think I'm working a transition move.
